John Frazier

Shannon recently helped my wife deliver our son Charlie, and was an invaluable resource before, during and after his birth. Her dedication, her caring and compassionalte support through this wonderful and intense experience were nothing short of amazing. I cannot fully express our gratitude here, as I simply do not have the words to adiquately do so.

One thing I can say, is that the individual attention and support that Shannon provided me as a husband and new father surrounding the birth of my son was absolutly essential in that it gave me the courage and strenth that I needed be there for my wife and son throughout a lengthly and complicated and birth.

Thank you so much for all that you have done for us Shannon, we could not have done this without you.

With love,

J, C, and C.

Having Shannon on board for our birth was important decision that we had made as a couple in how successful we are were going to be to sticking to our birth plan…her knowledge, calming and peaceful presence was priceless for us throughout our pregnancy…during our labor process she was instrumental in helping us achieve a positive and memorable birth of our baby. She knew when to step in with assisting us with our needs…we just wish she was there for our previous 2 births…highly recommeneded!!!

Aaron Harder's testimonial Shannon was an amazing advantage to have with the birth of our second child. There were many times that her calm manner and suggestions helped me to know what to do and how to help my wife bring our first son into this world. It was more than I could ask for to have someone there who had the knowledge and experience to help me help my wife. Shannon never assumed anything and her suggestions for techniques of help were invaluable. Jamierae’s testimonial I was so incredibly blessed to have Shannon as my doula! Even though I had done a lot of research and was fairly confident in my “plan”. I know that having Shannon there for second baby was a huge part of why I had such a good experience before, during and after labour. When I was in the moment a lot of the knowledge was stuck in my head and not as easily accessible. Shannon knew what my desires for labour and delivery where and with a wealth of knowledge and compassion, she helped me to see them through. I wish I could give justice to how great she was!
